Super-chic moms-to-be! Dressing while pregnant can be a challenge for some expectant moms, but not for first-timers Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Kristen Bell. Here, Us Weekly deconstructs the stylish stars’ maternity looks — and suggests similar wardrobe staples that will prove to be fashion essentials long after baby is born.
ABOUT JENNA’S MATERNITY LOOKS
“I think it’s one of the sexiest things ever!” Channing Tatum raved about wife Jenna’s pregnancy, which the couple confirmed in December 2012. Flaunting her new pregnancy curves in colorful maxi dresses and roomy blouses that she frequently tops with a denim jacket, the American Horror Story actress and Step Up alum, 32, keeps her breezy, California casual fashion sense front and center while expecting. One of her recent style hits: The Rachel Pally printed maxi she wore for a lunch date January 18 in L.A.

ABOUT KRISTEN’S MATERNITY LOOKS
Expecting her first child with fiance Dax Shepard, the House of Lies actress, 32, is a fan of form-fitting garments as she enters the late stages of pregnancy. And just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean she can’t rock her tried-and-true wardrobe faves. Promoting her film The Lifeguard at Sundance in January 2013, the actress worked the red carpet in a leather jacket, putting her bump on display with Isabella Oliver’s open maternity jacket. When she’s not all dolled up for events, the actress — who’ll begin filming a Veronica Mars movie after giving birth now that fans raised $2 million to help fund it — opts for another mommy must-have: Comfy, flat shoes.
